Description of problem:

sss_cache fails to clear the cache:

$ sudo sss_cache -UG
(Fri Oct 19 07:38:23:724827 2012) [sss_cache] [sysdb_domain_init_internal] (0x0010): Wrong DB version (got 0.13 expected 0.11)
Could not open available domains

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

$ rpm -q sssd

How reproducible:

Upstream ticket:

Comment 2 Jakub Hrozek 2012-10-19 13:53:56 UTC
The domains are upgraded automatically when the SSSD is started after being upgraded to a package version that uses a newer internal DB version.

Is it possible that you had a domain configured with an old SSSD version, then unconfigured it while the cache was still on the dist, upgraded the SSSD and then ran the sss_cache tool?

Comment 3 Jakub Hrozek 2012-10-19 16:24:12 UTC
btw if you can still reproduce the bug, here's how you can inspect which database has the wrong db version:

for db in /var/lib/sss/db/cache_*; do echo === DB: $db ===; ldbsearch -H $db cn=sysdb version; done

ldbsearch is a part of ldb-tools.

Comment 4 Jakub Hrozek 2012-10-25 09:49:42 UTC
The other reason might be that the cache upgrade really failed -- that would be indicated by a very loud DEBUG message in the logs.

Comment 5 Jakub Hrozek 2012-10-25 10:00:39 UTC
AH, sorry, I was reading the error backwards. The sss_cache was complaining that the database was NEWER than expected.

The 0.11 version is pre-1.9. Can you check what version of sssd-tools you had that produced the error? (sss_cache is still part of sssd-tools, not sssd even though there is a bug to change it)

Comment 6 Stef Walter 2012-10-26 19:50:58 UTC
Here you go:

Name        : sssd-tools
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 1.9.2
Release     : 1.fc18
Size        : 560 k

It's likely that I did alternate old and new sssd versions, although don't ask me when and which ones :)

Comment 7 Jakub Hrozek 2012-10-28 19:07:23 UTC
OK, I was playing with sss_cache and trying to break it, but couldn't along my colleague Michal who is fixing and breaking the command line tools all the time :-).

Given that the only way we could reproduce the error message was by really trying to load a newer db version with an old version of the SSSD, we're going to just improve the error message upstream. Currently it's cryptic and scary.
